3. Diving in Fiji
Taveuni, Fiji, is one of those places like the Great Barrier Reef, Bonaire, or the Red Sea that is discussed only in clandestine conversations between avid scuba divers. They come here to dive the renowned Rainbow Reef, where intricate hard and soft corals and myriad fish provide divers with a kaleidoscopic view of the sea. Add white-tip sharks, sea turtles, and manta rays to the equation and you feel like you're diving in your own private aquarium. Maravu Plantation is popular with divers and offers a variety of options for the budget traveler. Four nights accommodation in a bure (thatched hut), breakfasts, and four days of two-tank diving will set you back $825.
